Glasgow Celtic star Kieran Tierney has revealed that he will not be joining Leicester City this summer, as reported by The Record.
The youngster has been linked with a move to the Foxes. Brendan Rodgers recently left his role as Hoops boss in order to takeover the Premier League club and reportedly wants to reunite with the talented defender, according to the Scottish Sun.
Celtic fan favourite Tierney has established himself as one of the most highly-rated left-backs in Europe and previously worked well with Rodgers.
He is also now arguably at a stage of his career where he will be able to cope with the demands of the English Premier League.
The report also added that the Leicester will make a £25 million move for Celtic’s Tierney this summer if they end up losing Ben Chilwell. The England international has been linked with a move to big-spending Manchester City.
If Tierney had to be sold, the figure would likely exceed Celtic’s club record sale, which is their £20 million deal of forward Moussa Dembele to Lyon last summer.
Celtic do not need to rush to sell the Scotland international. He is on contract with the club until the summer of 2023. As a youth product of the Hoops and die-hard fan, Tierney will also be in no rush.
The player is one of the most important members of the Celtic first-team. Despite being just 21-years-old, he has already helped the club to win three Scottish Premiership titles, two Scottish Cups and two Scottish League Cups. He is also a three time PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award recipient.
